16096824Synopsis

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Review

I. Loved. This. Book! It’s been years since I’ve read Fantasy – I’m definitely a Contemporary Romance addict – but I absolutely loved A Court of Thorns and Roses, and Sarah J. Maas completely reignited my love for this genre. Her writing style was flawless and she completely blew me away with this storyline and these characters. I kept my expectations low going into this book because everyone else was raving over this story and I was afraid I would be one of the very few who wouldn’t love it, but boy was I wrong. I fell in love with the story and characters, and I honestly couldn’t get enough. I was captivated by everything in this book, and even though it started out a little slow, it quickly captured my attention and I was highly entertained throughout. There was a lot going on in this novel, but I loved how everything progressed from beginning to end. I was completely blown away and I loved reading every single minute of it.

   I loved Feyre, Tamlin, and Lucien, and even Rhysand grew on me by the end. I loved Feyre’s personality and her strength and perseverance. She didn’t give up easily and always put up a fight regardless of whether or not she thought she would win. I loved reading the story from her POV, and I was so glad that Ms. Maas wrote it in first person, past tense. It’s my absolute favorite way to read a book and it really made me love this one even more. I felt like I could really connect with Feyre and some of the other characters on a deeper level, and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them a little more.

   A Court of Thorns and Roses was full of surprises at every turn and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The storyline and characters were amazing, and I loved reading every single page of this book. Sarah J. Maas did a phenomenal job with ACOTAR and I cannot wait to get started on the next installment, A Court of Mist and Fury. I’m just so thankful that I don’t have to wait a year or more to read the rest of this amazing series! LOL! :)
